WeCare Cards

WeCare Cards is designed for school children and community members to communicate with senior citizens in Arizona’s assisted living homes who are physically and socially isolated from their family and friends due to COVID-19 quarantine restrictions.

While isolation can cause loneliness for individuals of any age, isolation of our seniors can impact negatively both their physical and mental health. Isolation has been linked to cognitive decline and dementia, an increased risk of falls as well as hospital re-admissions and increased mortality.

This older age group has traditionally communicated with personal greeting cards, handwritten letters and pictures. They treasure receiving and holding these paper messages, which can trigger fond memories of “letters from home” received over their lifetimes.

We hope that mailing WeCare Cards with individual greetings of love, hugs and smiles will bring the isolated residents some comfort and cheer despite the separations being imposed upon them.

We follow CDC guidelines and hold all items at least 24 hours before mailing to assisted living homes.
